One Growth Profession - Cybersecurity
In class, when we were discussing your priorities if you were suddenly elected to Congress, the topic of cybersecurity came up. Personally, I would have rated this my top priority for those issues where science and technology are going to be the keys to finding viable solutions to the problem. Well, if you have any interest in computer science, computer engineering, and even law, it is predicted by the Information Trust Institute (at the U. of Illinois) that job growth in this sector of the economy will increase over 50% in the next few years. It is rare to see this sort of projected growth in any field nowadays, but if interested check out their Cyber Security Scholars Program.
